Mobile MIM lets physicians use an iPad or iPhone to measure distances and image intensity in CT, PET, MRI, and other scans, as well as display measurement lines and notes.
It's been tested on only a handful of kids, but using MRI with a diagnostic dye to look for cancer may work just as well as using PET and CT scans.
When it comes to detecting cancer, ultrasound is simply too low-res to compare with CT scans and MRIs. Up the resolution, though, and the less expensive, radiation-free alternative could become an ideal alternative.
The goal of the cloud-computing project is to let physicians and radiologists "google" a brain scan to find patients with similar abnormalities, review their anonymous medical records, and improve both diagnosis and treatment.
Georgetown University has begun a program that uses iPads in their operating rooms to assist doctors with complicated operating procedures.
Researchers test out a catheter-based probe that emits high-frequency energy directly into the renal artery to deactivate nerves that regulate blood pressure.
X-ray tech is more a hundred years old, and doctors in The Netherlands have powered up an old machine and compared it with a modern one. It stands up well--if you don't mind the radiation.
Researchers say the tech, which could help spot heart disease, multiple sclerosis, specific cancers, and more, may make MRI scans a standard procedure during annual exams.
Researchers at UCLA digitize rapid diagnostic tests to test for diseases such as HIV, malaria, and tuberculosis with less user error.
Harvard scientists create an interface that allows humans to move a rat's tail just by thinking about it.
